Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2009109885A2] A photo-epilation device (1) comprises: a hand-held housing (10) with at least one window opening (11); a lamp (20) accommodatedin the housing for generating light having a spectralrange from approximately 575nm to approximately 1700nm;and a control device (70) for driving the lamp (20). The lamp is switched on in brief pulses having a pulse duration in the range from l.1ms to 1.9ms, preferably about 1.8ms, and a pulse repetition frequency in the range from 0.1Hz to 0.5Hz. The fluence on skin level is in the range from 2 to 7J/cm2, dependenton the skin type, particularlyfrom: 5 to 7J/cm2 for skin types I, II, III; 4 to 6J/cm2 for skin type IV; 3 to 5J/cm2 for skin type V;and 2 to 3J/cm2 for skin type VI.
